*If you’re feeling ambitious, you can easily make your own bagel chips. You’ll need thinly sliced bread rounds, an egg, and a jar of everything bagel spice. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Place bread rounds on a baking sheet. In a small bowl, beat the egg. Brush a thin layer of egg wash onto each round and sprinkle with a few pinches of everything bagel spice, to taste. Bake in the oven for 5-8 minutes, or until golden brown and toasted. Remove from oven and allow to cool before topping.
